our cnn correspondents across israel as well as in gaza right now. earlier in the day, i went to orbkalon where i saw what was going on firsthand on the israeli side of the border. as soon as we got there, the sirens actually started going on. you could see people running towards shelters. i started running after israeli soldiers demanded that all of us -- our cnn crew, myself, we get to a shelter. usually they have about 30 seconds once the sirens go off before there actually is a rocket or missile that reaches the ground. in this particular case, when we were running, we got to a shelter. it was packed with soldiers, with civilians. and then we finally heard that thud. in this particular case, that iron dome, the israeli anti-missile defense shield, which has been financed at least in some measure by the united states, it worked. and the incoming rokts and missiles were destroyed in the air. later we walked outside and saw that plume of smoke showing those missiles, the rockets had been destroyed. earlier in the day at that same school where we had been -- the iron dome didn

majority of which comes from iran. >> throughout this crisis cnn has positioned crews throughout the region including correspondents in egypt and on both sides of the israeli/gaza border. the celebrations in gaza city right now apparently growing larger and larger. let's go to arwa damon on the scene for us. set the scene, tell our viewers what's going on. >> reporter: well, wolf, if you were to look at the street below us 24 hours ago, you would have seen that it was utterly deserted. we're hearing sirens right now. and for the first time since this conflict began, it is not because they're heading to the scene of an air strike. there's a traffic jam down below. for some it is celebrating what they do view as being a victory for them. for others it is celebrating the fact that they quite simply are able to finally leave their homes for the first time since this all began. we were down there just a short while ago. entire families have packed themselves into their vehicles for the first time not because they are fleeing violence but quite simply because they can go outside without fear of p

. instead, the office of the e jimgs president, mohamed morsi, told cnn the egyptian government has no plans to make an announcement tonight. since wednesday of last week militants have fired hundreds of rockets into israel. we're about to bring you one family's harrowing story of dodging the rocket that hit their home today. random attacks like this provoke ferocious air assaults on gaza by the israelis, which also continued today. [ gunfire ] about two hours ago a reuters camera in gaza city caught this explosion. cnn's ben wedeman reports a building near the city was likely hit by an israeli air strike in gaza. he was on live with hala gorani when the explosion happened. take a look. >> i think it's pretty clear that we are moving in the direction of -- [ gunfire ] i can hear shattering glass out there right now. the building just shook of course because i was looking at the camera i didn't see where the blast took place. anybody see it? okay. to the north of this building here. so despite talk of cease fire, hala, it appears that the guns are still firing. >> the gaza ministry of health

in gaza which has been considerable. you've seen that on cnn. and also relieves suffering of the israeli population. second, it does give the israelis an opportunity to see if hamas is credible. if hamas will meet the test of a calm period and in effect hold to a cease-fire and not fire rockets into israel proper much less to a place like jerusalem where hamas tried to attack today. third, it gives secretary clinton time to fly from cambodia, as she's doing now, and to arrive on scene and it may be at secretary clinton will really be the glue that holds this altogether and her presence, especially with the israelis, might give them the confidence to proceed with a formal cease-fire. >> how so? she's meeting with the palestinian authority president abbas, who has nothing to do with hamas, has nothing to do with the gaza strip. and to some people, the west bank, has lost a lot of credibility over the years. >> well, she'll also be meeting with prime minister netanyahu, and he'll be meeting with mohamed morsi of egypt. morsi the key mediator, trying to bring the cease-fire together. of cour

. joining me now from cnn's bureau in jerusalem is mark regev. spokesperson for the israeli government and for prime minister benjamin netanyahu. mark, good morning. >> good morning. >> let me just begin with this cease-fire. how confident are you that it will continue to hold? are you at all, like some israelis, disappointed? >> i think, obviously, when you're dealing with a terrorist group like hamas, there's a certain, and it's probably healthy to be a bit skeptical, but these arrangements were negotiated with egypt and with the sponsorship and support of the united states. and we're giving them a chance. we will keep our commitments under these arrangements. hamas has promised the egyptians that they will hold their fire. and we're hopeful that this will last. that the people of southern israel will have normal lives, that they can live without the daily fear of an incomeing rockt in their neighborhoods exploding. if this cleaves peace and quiet, that for us is victory. that for us is winning. that's what we wanted to protect our people. >> i wanted to give you back to something yo
